@MrsFarmer:  I agree with FF too.  I’m not very good with celsius and I forgot my FF password but when I get a chance I’ll post my chart because it looks verrryy similar with dips like yours in my post-o phase.

Honestly, temping internally was the best move I made over my charting history. The erratic temperatures definitely improved and I have begun to see a bit more of a pattern – although yes, that’s also likely thanks to the fertility medication I’ve been taking!

So my post O temps are only 97.7 and 97.6.  It’s kind of annoying.

@jaguar:  I was temping internally, but I found I had to move around a good bit to get my PJ bottoms and underwear off. How do you solve that problem?

@bunny:  So I usually just sleep in a nightshirt, and just kind of slink my knickers to the side to temp. No wiggling, that way. 🙂

So, you guys? I think I might have a miracle O on my hands!

I had an ultrasound last Thursday and my two follicles were only 9 mm, so I didn’t even bother to take OPKs over the weekend. On Monday, the doctor saw one 16mm follicle, but he thought it was probably actually the same two follies conjoined, only 8 mm each. Well, I guess he was wrong! My CM dried up and my temperature has been high for the last three days. I must have missed my LH surge on Sunday or Monday! And — AND — we had sex TWICE in my fertile window WITHOUT EVEN KNOWING IT!!! I’m trying not to get my hopes up, but it looks like we got super lucky!

Of course, today’s high temp could be a fluke. I was so nervous about temping this morning that I kept waking up in the middle of the night and checking my phone to see if it was time yet. So I just need to cross my fingers for more high temps and that my 7DPO blood draw (scheduled for Monday) shows a good progesterone level! And even if I ovulated, our chances of concieving are still only like 20 percent, tops. 

But still! O! O! YAY!

@septcabride:  Yeah, I figure with my PCOS and the fact that Mr. B is a smoker, our chances are below 20. *shrug* Not much we can do about it now except cross our fingers and hope for the best! 

ETA: If it matters, I’m 27 and DH is 30.

@septcabride:  Thanks for your input!  No, I don’t use OPKs, and I have been temping orally, but I think I will switch once my next cycle starts.  I’m interested in seeing the difference in temps too!

Also, my temperature was SKY HIGH this morning (like completely off my charts at 37.5!!!)–too bad it was from a fever that I came down with last night…Oh well, I got to stay at home today because I was feeling so miserable.  My immune system must be shot because I`m on antibiotics for the 2nd time this month, once with a throat infection and now with bronchitis.

Question for U.S. charters — how are you accounting for the switch to Dayling Saving Time today?
